    So this little fella has been living in my stone wall for a month or so and I always checked on him every night. My girlfriend thought of a good idea to catch him so I can protect him from the elements and always guarantee him a meal. Well, I had an extra tank laying around so I caught him. He's pretty mellow for the most part but if he ever escaped id probably shit myself.

    His name is Lyle and hes about the size of the palm of my hand lol.

    Caught him and he put on a little show.

    Notice the hello kitty duct tape thanks to my girlfriend cuz I'd be DAMNED if he got out lol. His diet I'm gonna try first is baby crickets from petco. Well See how that goes for now.

    I also seem to get along well with spiders, right up until I stomp their guts in lol.

    Does anyone know if injesting poisonous spiders will hurt anything?
    Does the toxin from a blackwidow or brown recluse have to be injected into the bloodstream to cause the necrosis,
    or can eating them whole rot the stomach and start spreading dead flesh?
    Just curious, not that I ever would, muuuhahahahahah.

    It will find a way to escape. Spiders are clever buggers and they have the power to transform into a fine mist so that mesh wont help. Be afraid. Be very afraid.

    The crickets should do the job. Its fascinating and terrifying watching them hunt and feed. Patience personified/ spiderfied.

    What's with the spider hate here!?
    I'd say nice pet, I like spiders. Yesterday I fed some wild spiders. Not sure what they're called, they sit by a flower and wait for flies. I capture a fly for them and carefully hold it towards the spidert and SWOSH! they catch it.
    Facinating creatures.
    If I find a spider indoors i let it out. In some cases I leave it inside, some spiders likes it indoors and they also kill flies, mosqitos and such.


    Edit: This also reminds me of a spider catching story! If you dont mind me sharing.
    me and my family made a trip to Belize around 10 years ago. I think I was about 11. There was this taxi of sorts called "No Stress Express" which was a rusty old van. While waiting for the No Stress Express I wanted to look for insects. There was a small house just beside the road, you know one of those that stand on "legs" so to speak, there was maybe 50 cm gap under the house. So I crawl under there and found a sheet of scrap metal, which I look under. Bingo! One tarantula and several cockroaches. I yell to my dad to bring me a tupperware container so I could catch it. Meanwhile the No Stress Express approached. My parents told me to hurry up and I got a little stressed, but finally managed to catch the tarantula.

    Im not sure I'd do that again today haha!
    We ended up bringing 5 or so tarantulas home and 7-8 scorpions. My dad was a bit sweaty at the air port when our bags were selected for "additional scanning" but luckily they didnt find our new pets :D

    The scorpions we brought home mated. One day I found alot of baby scorpions all over the laundry room. We did manage to catch them and put them back (and used some duct tape to keep them there)

    I bet it is still a more loving and affectionate pet than most cats. Fuck cats.
